You can open the dump with any visual studio, but to make use of it, 
you will need the some files (.pdb?) produced for the particular build 
which is crashing on the machine. I am not sure if these files are 
available for the nightlies (Jürgen?) but I guess it would be the 
easiest thing to compile it on your dev machine, reproduce on the other 
machine with your build and then analyze the dump on your dev-machine 

Or you just revert to simple printf debugging in your plugin and narrow 
down the point of failure with some log messages
